25 of My Quirks

I'm all out of bloggy ideas today, so I've decided to share 25 things about myself...Enjoy!

  1. My favorite color is yellow.
  2. I have an irrational fear of being attacked by squirrels, but I'm not actually afraid of squirrels.
  3. I flew an airplane once.
  4. I'm an English major. Even though my major falls into the liberal arts category, I am conservative in my thinking.
  5. I am a fan of the Razorbacks, Cowboys and Braves through the good, the bad and the ugly.
  6. I am the world's pickiest eater.
  7. I love to cook, but rarely eat what I make (refer to number 6).
  8. I have a split uvula. (That is not something dirty)
  9. My favorite movie is Bull Durham.
  10. I drive a Jeep Wrangler X and I love it.
  11. The hubby and I don't own a vehicle that isn't a Jeep...this happened totally by coincidence.
  12. I love moving as frequently as we do, but I sometimes worry about how it affects the kids.
  13. Even though I plan to be an English teacher, I'm not a grammar nazi. However, it drives me crazy when people misuse it's, its, their and there.
  14. I have a love-hate relationship with my Blackberry. I love all that it does, but I hate that it costs me so much every month.
  15. I don't mind doing laundry, but I hate folding it.
  16. I do not like Shakespeare's works. This isn't because I find it difficult to read. It's because I think it's crap. (Sorry, if you disagree.)
  17. I'm going to vacation in Europe...don't know when, but someday.
  18. My first major in college was Horticulture.
  19. When I was in high school, I was on a state champion FFA horse judging team. We placed 3rd in the nation.
  20. Bing commercials make my head hurt.
  21. I've read the first 2 Twilight books and will read the last 2. I'm not infatuated with them like the rest of the world seems to be, but I feel like I should read them because my future students are reading them.
  22. I'm distracted on a daily basis by Facebook.
  23. I have a goal that all 3 of my kiddos will leave my house knowing how to cook one really good meal, how to do their own laundry, and how to change the oil and tires on their vehicles.
  24. I love getting mail.
  25. I can hook up my own washer and dryer.


  1. Seems we are very similar! A few of these things would definitely be on my list too! :-)

  2. #1 I flew IN a plane once. Lol.
    #2 It's (see I used it right!) not hard to be grammatically correct if people would just think about it!
    #3 Since you like being random, did you know that an octopus is a mollusk? I had no idea, until I watched Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader. That was my brain crinkle for the week!

  3. It's great getting to know you a little better. Those are great goals you have for your children, it will serve them well. I also am going to vacation in Europe one day and don't know when either and I love getting mail, usually! I'm impressed you can hook up your own washer and dryer, I would have no idea how to do that!

    I thought Shakespeare was okay when I had a really great teacher practically explain it word-for-word, but now that I've been out of school for too many years, I find I don't have the time to spend deciphering it to the level where I can enjoy it. I have only read half of the first chapter of Twilight. I thought the first two pages were great, but then thought the writing really slacked off in the following pages. I'd like to read the rest to see what the fuss is about, but I really don't like vampires!

  4. How can you cook and not eat it? I nibble all the time:)


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
